Hello - Need help please
Hello everyone. My wife and I just took in a kitten that we found wondering in the woods behind our home. He seems extremely friendly. Jumps and climbs up us all the time, loves to run around, never hisses at us or seems distressed.
He's very small, I'd guess he couldn't be more than a few weeks old. I noticed today that his eyes were shut and they had some sort of dried pus on them. I cleaned them off with a cotton ball and he seemed fine. A few hours later, his eyes were shut again. They also look a bit red around the edges.
We're not really pet people. She saw him,fell in love, and wanted to take him in, but this is an area we both know nothing about. Does this sound like something we can just keep cleaning? Should we be using some sort of medicated drops? Or should I just take him to the Vet?
